Summer's Last Hurrah

Hello All,

It's going to be another beautiful day in Cali... though I hear we may get some rain tomorrow.  I guess I will be buying wiper blades tonight, just to be sure I am ready.  Of course, then it won't rain, right?

I think I stated before I love the fall weather.  Warm days and crisp nights.  And then there is all the color of the leaves, sunsets and sunrises.   It is like summer is holding on, just to stay around for a little longer.

For today's project I thought I'd try something a little different.  First I used painted the background paper with water colors to look like a sunset.   Then I used glue from the Rubber Cafe and very lightly rubbed a small amount it through my Tim Holtz sun burst stencil.  I let it for about 5 minutes and then sprinkled on a layer of glitter.  This glue from the Rubber Cafe is my favorite.  You should check them out.    The sentiment if from Serendipity stamps.

Have a great Hump Day!!!!
